I'm wondering if others are as confused as I am about Marlin Richards' Dec. 12 letter. Is he saying people have forgotten Clinton's indiscretions or that he was a great president?

Just to clear things up: George W. Bush created a $5.7 trillion deficit in eight years, not $10 trillion. Barack Obama already has added $5.3 trillion in his first four years; can't wait to see what he does to us in the next four.

Obama is also the only president to have the U.S. credit rating lowered.

Entitlements? We now have 47 million families on food stamps up, from 31.9 when Bush was in office; health care is now taxable. Gas prices have gone from $1.84 (Bush) to $3.69 per gallon (Obama).

As for Clinton, his immorality brought public shame on the White House, not just here in the States but worldwide. He brought grief and shame to  his wife and daughter, and Richards is thanking God for him and saying he is "a good example for U.S. families." Wow.
